Reviews
"A must-have for fans of '80s teen flicks . . . what makes it so readable is the juicy, behind-the-scenes stuff."--Associated Press

"Gora interviews all the major actors and players anew, and knits together a narrative that, in the end, gives fans a clear, sound understanding of what commercial and cultural forces produced these films--Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Say Anything and more--and why they still mean a great deal to so many."--Chicago Sun-Times

"As entertaining as it is seamlessly reported and written . . . a poignant homage to Hughes and his films."--Elle

"I've become addicted to Susannah Gora's . . . masterful documentation of Hughes and the Brat Pack films."--Steve Spears, St. Petersburg Times
